Water Report Help?!

Post by monkeymullins » Sun Aug 06, 2017 10:49 pm

Had a water report and would like some help understanding what the report reads and what additions I would need to add to improve the quality of my brews?



Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks all for your time

Sadly, like most water company reports, that one contains little helpful to a brewer and not any of the vital information needed to make decisions and take actions.
Without patience, life becomes difficult and the sooner it's finished, the better.

Contact Wallybrew on here and arrange to have him test your water.
He's very good, a lot of guys on here use him including myself.

Look on their site for the hardness report if you want a calcium level and some form of alkalinity that may or not be helpful depending on how they express it

looks like you may have fairly low mineral and soft water which is handy

so have a read of this if you have not allready done so and I'd agree with contacting wallybrew too
Planned: Green Hop ale
Fermenting: Nothing
Bottled: Home grown Halletau Mittelfruh golden ale, centennial golden ale, Brown Kolsch, Strong Burton with Brett C
